Khloe Kardashian goes topless to show trolls 'all this isn’t edited', slammed for 'blowing the opportunity'
'My body, my image and how I choose to look and what I want to share is my choice. It's not for anyone to decide or judge what is acceptable or not anymore,' Khloe has written.
After Khloe Kardashian's "unedited picture" ruffled a few feathers, despite appearing briefly on social media before it was taken down, the reality TV star has hit back at haters by going live on Instagram while flaunting her natural body, which she says "isn't edited". Along with the clips showing ample skin, Khloe has also shared a long note, criticizing trolls who've body-shamed her for years.
She captioned the post as, "PS Yes I did a live to show you all this isn’t photoshopped." The post comes a day after her team decided to take down her unedited bikini picture, which drew a lot of reactions. Khloe was particularly called out for "highly edited" her pictures and videos while promoting body positivity.
In the first video, Khloe has a pair of nude bottoms on, with her hands covering her bosom as she moves before the mirror flaunting her real body. In the next video, she has posed similarly but putting her bottom half on the display this time.
Paired with the videos is a long post, in which she has spoken in detail about her decision to take down the previous picture and expressed her frustration about being constantly scrutinized for being a celebrity. Khloe has also addressed her being called the "fat sister" or "ugly sister" of the Kardashians.
Her post reads, "The photo that was posted this week is beautiful. But as someone who has struggled with body image her whole life, when someone takes a photo of you that isn't flattering in bad lighting or doesn't capture our body the way it is after working so hard to get to this point- and then shares it to the world- you should have every right to ask for it to not be shared- regardless of who you are."
"For over a decade now in photos, every single flaw and perfection had been micro-analyzed and made fun of to the smallest detail and I am reminded of them every day by the world. And when I take that criticism to use as motivation to get myself in the best shape of my life and to even help others with the same struggles, I am told I couldn't have done it through hard work and I must have paid for it all."
Towards the end of the note, she has written, "My body, my image and how I choose to look and what I want to share is my choice. It's not for anyone to decide or judge what is acceptable or not anymore."
While many have praised Khloe for stepping forward to address the fuss surrounding her picture, a few have slammed her yet again, for not owning up to her own picture and taking it down. One commented,"Love you but I dont get it... you had an opportunity there to share to young women and every women out there who look up to you what body positivity is! Its amazing to post glam pics of yourself everyday but its also amazing to show your flaws as well... that was a beautiful rare photo and you blew that opportunity 💔 i have also suffered and continue to suffer from body image issues! Would be a powerful thing to see a Kardashian be vulnerabl about their insecurities" While another wrote, "khloe sis you look amazing but you still had work done. there’s nothing wrong w that idk why everyone keeps it a secret"
And one wrote, "But again you guys are the ones who are setting those standards for yourself, all you have to do is love yourself in whatever shape and form you are.You don't have to please anyone. Love and happiness comes from within Khloe. You don't need to share some videos, what do you want to gain from that. Learn and teach your daughter that she does not need validation from anyone."
